It's my party, and I'll cry if I want too....

Well, luckily there was no crying at Ivy's 2nd Birthday Party! At least, none that I can remember..... You'll have to excuse the quality of some of these pictures. Our new camcorder doesn't take the best pictures, so I stole some from my cousin Rachel's facebook! The party was a success. We had a packed house with both sides of the family. I think next year, we are going to start having 2 parties. One for the family and one for our friends. We just have too tiny of a house. And, Ivy will be old enough that we can like.....have the party somewhere fun!

I was really proud of my homemade banners!

Ivy got a monster coloring book for Christmas, and so I colored the monsters, cut them out, and pasted them to color paper.

I was really happy with some party supplies that I ordered from Bake it Pretty. These little boom boxes reminded me of Yo Gabba Gabba, which is Ivy's FAVORITE show! The little monster eyes were cool, too. You put them on your finger and make your hand talk....looks like your hand has eyes.

Everyone loves popcorn! I got these popcorn bags from Bake it Pretty as well.'s a pic of some snacks....yummy.

And, I tried to attempt some monster cupcakes! I am so totally not a cook, but these turned out fine! Not too good of a picture, but you get the idea.

And it was so hard for me to get a picture of Ivy cuz she was running around all over the place! But she looked super cute in her birthday shirt.

I said we didn't need presents, but of course, some people just couldn't resist! She got some Hello Kitty rainboots, coloring books, cool clothes, and some stuff to get her potty trianing on the move!

The kids were a little too young to enjoy "birthday games", so we just had a mini "balloon drop"! We dumped 74 mini balloons from the "sky" and the kids got to dance in them. I'm sure they all tried to eat them as well. And, I think there are still a few roaming around my house!

Ivy was so dainty when eating her birthday cupcake! She's such a girl.

And Elouise and Joshie had fun hanging out, too! Joshie is 3 weeks younger than Elouise, but he is so much taller! He'll be a big boy just like his uncles and dad.

Elouise makes such crazy faces! After the party, my Aunt Robin was holding both Josh and Elouise and all my family was trying to get them to smile!

We finally got some cute smiles! I'm so glad Rachel captured this picture!

I'm so glad that Gloria, Rachel, Faith, and Josh got to come in town. I love seeing Ivy bond with family. Her and Faith enjoyed some fast lunch of chicken nuggets together after the party was over.

The next day we hung out at my Aunt Lanettes house. Ivy was still sporting her tatoos we did at her party. She came to me the next morning with her tatooed arms stretched out and said "Look Mum, I pretty!". She is pretty. And funny. She was playing inside her diaper bag, literally.

You can tell which pictures you took... I lack the "artistic eye"
